Arsenic is carcinogenic. At a minimum the amount in foods need to be declared on the label. Lost sales cost a lot less than lost lives or the medical costs to save lives.

It is not acceptable that rice can contain potentially carcinogenic and harmful levels of arsenic, and many people don't even know that the food they expect to be safe and are feeding to their children could harm them. Limits should be set and rice should be routinely tested for safety.

Signed this but NOW Soak ALL RICE overnight for safer standards. How about yours...??? Soak Rice Overnight for safety until FDA sets healthy and proper standards! RICE can store "ARSENIC" for up to 10 years...

I'm signing because I eat a lot of rice, and I know several other people who do too.

IMHO, this petition should have way more signatures than it does. It's crazy that "organic" brown rice would have inorganic arsenic in it...

We shouldn't have to worry about the food we eat. Arsenic in rice has to go.

Poising ourselves with food is unacceptable
